Leather Finishing Chemicals

The different leather products you see around you have been perfected to a smooth finish by people in the tanning and chemical industry. Leather finishing chemicals contribute towards making the final product a sturdy, durable product. One such company which deals with different leather products and uses chemicals during the manufacturing of leather is Veco. Their leather finishing binders are divided into three categories, namely:

  1. Acrylic Resins
  2. Polyurethane Resins
  3. Polyurethane Resins without NMP

Acrylic Resins

The one defining factor for these resins (applicable to all 3 categories as stated above) is that, according to Veco, they are “resins in aqueous dispersion”. There are two types of Acrylic Resins: Vecosol Binder A (311, 490 & 900) and Vecosol Impregnante. The distinctive feature about the Vecosol binders is that they are resistant to water. The Vecosol Binder A490 should be used when the intent is to get a finish that looks natural and has a soft touch. The A900 can be improved by using proper curing, thereby strengthening the features of the product. The Vecosol Impregnante L1490, according to Veco, is an “impregnating resin capable of give high grain firmness in any type of skin.”

    Resins Polyurethane &  Resins Without NMP

The resins polyurethane category has 4 Vecosol binders: U315, 412, 516 and 607. The U315 binder is especially used for clothing leathers. It is renowned for its softness and superior adhesion. The U412 and 607 have superior flexibility properties. The U516 showcases its excellent printability as a main feature.

The main difference between the Resins Polyurethane and Resins without NMP is that the latter does not have N-metilpirolidone. The Vecosol binders without NMP have the following main features:

  1. Resistant to water
  2. Excellent adhesive properties
  3. Good coverage

Leather Filler Compound

When we look at a beautiful finished product, we appreciate the final masterpiece presented to us. Do we think of the work that goes into making the masterpiece you see in front of you? Well, let’s indulge you with the work that goes into leather and associated products using leather filler compounds as part of the package. Veco, a company specialized in leather finishing products, has been in the tanning industry for over forty years and knows a thing or ten about leather. They offer leather filler compound products in two categories 1) Vecoplast and 2) Vecosol.

Vecoplast Products

These leather finishing fillers have three types namely:

  1. Vecoplast AM
  2. Vecoplast M
  3. Vecoplast RO

These filler compounds above all share one thing in common: they are auxiliary filling matting compounds. The difference comes in how each individual type of filling compound works. The Vecoplast AM boasts of a leather finishing that is smooth, full and has excellent adhesive properties. The Vecoplast M on the other hand is used for the “finishing of buffed skins or crusts” (according to Veco). One startling quality about this filler type is that it gives leather an outstanding resistance to abrasion. The Vecoplast RO decreases the tackiness of the final product, and to Veco’s own telling, “increases the fullness of embossing.”

  Vecosol FR/AN

The Vecosol FR/AN is a plastering compound that chisels the edges of misaligned skins and gives them a straighter, equally-aligned surface. This plastering compound should be heated at temperatures of between 120˚ and 130˚ to give the finish a fuller appearance, making it ready for the next coating to be made on this surface.

Without a doubt, learning a thing or two about what goes into the final finishing leather product, you will appreciate it more and never look at it the same way again!
